    Hey Slava, just looked at your content aggregator platform - we're working on FeatherFeed ourselves. A browser plugin wich recommends the best content, so your header sparked my interest.

    My feedback so far:

    1. I like the card/tile overview, but they all said "Null" so I had no clue what they were about.
    2. The hamburger menu was something I wasn't expecting to behave as such. I was expecting a menu item to appear underneath the hamburger.
    3. The homepage said "for me" but I don't understand why it's specifically for me as I haven't logged in or given it any feedback on what I like
    4. I like how you represent the articles and the font (I'm not a designer btw )
    5. the site behaves sometimes a bit fast/ is sensitive to movements so I see a lot happening.
    6. I'm now on automotives and there are 5 articles. I scroll down but see an empty screen with no visual clue I reached the end.
    7. It's not easy to go back to the homescreen as it "remembers" the clicks, so I go through "automotive" "techblogs with an actual article I opened" "techblog overview" "homescreen".

    Hope this helps! And feel free to ping me if you need clarification on anything, happy to help!
